The fans' memorabilia

242 Showbeat magazine

Radio Scotland fan Jim Sinclair has very kindly sent us six issues of the station's magazine. Leafing through them, the name of the publication seems to have evolved over the months. The oldest copy he has, number 3, with a cover date of June 1966 is simply called 242 and is described as “Radio Scotland's Showbeat Monthly”. By issue 7, in October 1966, the title has become 242 Showbeat with the description “Radio Scotland's monthly”. By issue 9, December 1966, it is called 242 Showbeat Monthly. The photos on this page are from issues 3, 4 and 7. Click on the photos to see them in a larger format.
